3 wins in a row for Greece and the first team to make it to the next round. Puerto Rico-Greece 79-90. Of course, USA has not completed the third match yet, today's challenge is New Zealand. Brazil vs Spain is another great match for basketball lovers!

Now that the Greeks have returned home, I can focus on USA team for good! Of course, my main concern is that Spain does not do well at the World Cup. I do not know why, but I totally dislike them as attitude. OK, there are several great players, but that's about it!

Final Four time now, USA is hot and the match versus Lithuania is about to start. Spain was outwon by the French and so after this match the final opponent for USA will either be Serbia or France. Let's see, but first thing's first!

Don't forget that this is a special day for all Americans. So, I hope that our country has got one more reason to feel optimistic about after these 40 minutes. Come on, guys!

Mission accomplished! Now all we have to do is wait for our opponent at the final match. Personally, I predict that Serbia will win the French. A few hours left!
